Let's just get to the point. I hate my living room


It's not me at all. AT ALL!!!! For some time now, I've been longing for a lighter space infused with color. You know, like the rooms below






Those are the types of spaces that speak to me. But instead, I'm surrounded by this

Via- me:(

Ugh... Yeah.


I have tried lightening the space with throw pillows and such


But no luck with changing the way I feel about the room. It's just too much darkness going on. It's funny because I was in love with this color 3 years ago. Now??? I'm ready for us to part ways.


So yesterday I started testing out paint samples

I'm pretty set on the top right sample which is Wheat Bread by Behr paint at Home Depot. Can't wait to get started on this project. It's not going to take place until next week sometime because I'm gearing up for a five year olds birthday party:)

I'll keep you posted on the progress!

So glad you are going to paint, then you will have the room you want. Wheatbread is a great color, soft a bit of color but not too much, perfect,

Yea it's totally the paint color that makes it darker than you want.

Now you know I'm a glutton for dark walls, but I gotta say I'm loving the bright spaces your inspired by. I think it's def more you. I can tell that by your jewelry pieces you design. Plus I think the bright crisp walls will look amazing with your new black doors. And you HAVE to paint that campaign dresser coral.....you just HAVE to! Can't wait to see it come together:)

I LOVE Wheat Bread and think its a great choice. I find it to be a dead ringer for the famous BM Revere Pewter, but I prefer Home Depot's paint. Can't wait to see how it turns out!
